Raphaela: The BBC visits LCB

Posted on Friday 18th April, 2014

Today, Good Friday, I had a very good rehearsal. We were in a different studio and it was our last rehearsal at Dance Attic Studios. I loved it there as we had so much space to dance and mirrors to see our mistakes. Érico did a lot of rehearsing with my group Behind the Green Baize Door. First we did the kitchen scene (scene 4, which I wrote about in my last blog). Then the scene with Aunt Adelaide (scene 7) and finally the beginning of the wedding (scene 12). The rehearsal was very fun because I liked to work on more than one scene. Some of our scenes we dance with the Brown children but they weren't called for rehearsal today so we had to pretend they were there. We only had two hours of rehearsal and we had to get everything right so we didn't have to repeat steps and waste time. The BBC came over to film and interview some cast members afterwards. I wished I had been interviewed but nevertheless I had a great rehearsal.

Sixty children were chosen from over 500 young hopefuls to be part of the LCB’s 2014 season. Now they are working together, week in, week out, to create a stunning West End production of Nanny McPhee. In their own words, LCB’s young dancers share the highs and lows of this exciting, life-changing experience.
